    Reds at Marlins (8/26 - 8/29)

    Reds started a four game series with the Marlins last night and began it with a W, winning it 6-3.

    Freddy Galvis seems to be proving that he was a solid addition to the team. He hit a 3-run homer and had 4 RBIs total.

    Suarez hit his 36th homer of the season, which I believe is a career best, and he still has basically 5 weeks of the season left.

    Ervin also clubbed a 2-run homer.

    Sonny Gray with another pretty decent performance, minus the five walks.

    I agree, not throwing strikes led to the two runs.

    Iglesias has set a record for most hits with a 0-2 count, 24 times.

    They didn't start keeping the stat until 1988.

    Smokescreen for the later innings. Last I checked he had struck out 2.3 consecutive innings worth of Marlins.

    Reds win last night 8-5.

    Suarez with another HR, which is three games in a row now.

    Senzel has apparently changed his hitting stance, which has helped him over the last couple games after an extensive drought.

    Casali with a nice night last night too.

    I've said it before on here, a patient hitter can make Castillo look wild, due to the number of change-ups he throws that end up out of the strike zone.

    I don't think it's a matter of "stuff". I think maybe there needs to be a different approach to batters the first time through the lineup for him. Whether that's on him, Tucker/Casali, the pitching coach...I don't know who's ultimately calling the pitches for him...but, they need to recognize when batters are taking those change-ups and not swinging at them.

    Aquino has 41 Homers on the season in 425 attempts, which is a homer every 9.1 at bats.

    Barry Bonds averaged one in every 11 at bats in 2001.

    Per @redsfan_Brandon on Twitter.

    I know it's not the same but still a cool stat.
